How to display images stored on cloud on the app?

Hello guys,

How to do to store images/videos posted by users of the app to Amazon S3 ?

and to display back these images/video on the app ? ( collect url to show the media on user profile)

thank you for any help


Hi @Matt,

You can do that with the help of Integromat, for example.

The scenario should take the files/images from Adalo collection and put it to S3, and then put back the link to Adalo collection

Here is the example for Google Drive for the 1st part:
You need to (a) modify this scenario to use S3 and (b) add the action to update the record in Adalo with S3-s file URL.

I did something similar some time ago - what I remember is that setting S3 was a bit complicated. Don’t forget to set up ACLs correctly so that file is accessible from outside of the bucket.

Why always required third party, why it’s not possible achieve direct custom actions…?

Hi @Reyaas,

It could be possible via custom actions, but not with S3, according to my knowledge.

One of the issues is that AWS S3 has quite complicated authentication system, see here: Authenticating Requests (AWS Signature Version 4) - Amazon Simple Storage Service
I’m not sure this could be implemented in Adalo. And Integromat does all this for you :slight_smile:

Best regards, Victor.
